While many households on Long Island’s North Fork and East End know us for our heating fuel and equipment services, we also proudly keep families and businesses cool and comfortable throughout this region’s beautiful warm season. We sell, install, service and repair central air conditioning systems from Rheem and other major manufacturers.
When you entrust your home’s summer comfort to Burt’s Reliable, we’ll create a central A/C plan tailored to your family’s needs and budget. Whether you have a newly constructed house or one with some years on it, we’ll find a custom cooling solution. One of our specialties is installing whisper-quiet ducts, using an acoustic liner in conventional sheet metal ducting. We have flexible duct tubing for those hard-to-reach areas in architecturally challenging homes. We will also alert you to any manufacturer discounts that will make your purchase more affordable.
And if you don’t have ductwork in your house, we can install a Fujitsu ductless mini-split system.
Many homeowners come to us with questions about their current central A/C equipment. They want to know if they should invest in a new system. Here are answers to some common questions we hear:
Q. How long does a central air conditioner last?
A. If your A/C is maintained correctly, it can last 10 to 12 years.
Q. Why isn’t my A/C producing cool air?
A. There are several potential reasons, including:
An HVAC professional from Burt’s Reliable can determine the cause and repair it for you.
Q. When does it make more sense to replace my A/C equipment instead of repairing it?
A. Here are three times it makes more sense to replace your cooling system than to repair it:
The energy efficiency of a cooling system is measured through its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). This rating is like miles-per-gallon on your car. It tells you how much cool comfort you’ll get from the electricity you use. The higher the SEER rating, the better the cooling efficiency.
Effective January 1, 2023, all A/C equipment sold and installed in the U.S. must have a minimum rating of 15 SEER. This is a good rating for most home systems. However, we often recommend that people who run their A/C all day opt for a 16 SEER system.
We want your cooling equipment to operate efficiently for years. Our expert technicians are fully trained to repair and maintain your cooling equipment. We offer a comprehensive and affordable service plan to help your systems run more efficiently and save you money on your utility bill.
